Way to let everyone know that the place doesn't have any security measures.

Good point. Maybe this is how the police department extorts citizens by advertizing a business that has no security system and then charging them the permit fee once they get one! Only in Mountain View.

Way to go Mr. Veronin. Nice job letting everyone know about Le Petit Bistro's security situation. You didn't have to put that've bit of information in your article. Wow.

Wow is right. I can't believe the writer would publish their lack of security... unless... they've recently installed security and want to lure the thief back to catch him/her? A master mind at work!

I wonder -
Don't count on it. This writer frequently does things like this in his articles. I'm chalking it up to inexperience. At least, I hope that's why he does such irresponsible reporting. I can't believe that he hasn't removed that part and the comments pertaining to it yet. I guess that now it doesn't matter - the damage is done. I feel so bad for the owner - he's a wonderful man, and a great chef, I might add.

One of the most useful tips that I got from a friend was to install a restaurant camera. He recommended a webcam software called GotoCamera www.gotocamera.com This is how it works - Set up a webcam near to your cash counter or any part of your restaurant which you wish to monitor, download the GotoCamera software. The set-up instructions are pretty simple and easy to follow. The best part is that you can access it from your smart phone so that you can remotely monitor your camera's recordings when you are away from your restaurant.
